My brand new battery (Motorcraft) died after having it in my car for all of 2 days. My husband removed the aternator, took it and the replacement alternator to a car part place to have them checked. The one he removed was bad and the other was good so he replaced it. Next day after making sure the battery was fully charged I drove the car. All the while the battery light was on. Another day later the batter has been drained to empty. Is there a possibility there is something else that is keeping the alternator from doing it's job?

I would try a different alt. Also, there is a fuseable link between the bat and the alt. That sounds like the problem to me but I'm not there to check. Have that checked. NOTE: If the alt is good, the fuseable link will cause this because regardless of the alt's ability to charge to battery, it can't get power to it.
